      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

  4. Thanks IStream, now i get it ;>)
  5. no reason not to be polite!
  6. the previous distance was about 2,400 meters so 1 km further, that's a hell of a shot.
  7. on the plus side, that pup is probably there when you get back!
  8. aww she's beautiful. Labs...the friendliest faces in all of dogdom!
  9. do you actually have a cockapoo Dylan? we had a apricot cockapoo as in the video, had to put him down due to cancer last November at 14 yrs. they are quite the characters and he's missed.
  10. google https://www.google.ca/search?q=handybilly&oq=handybilly&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.4255j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&safe=active says handy billy's are a) a gas powered portable emergency water pump a block and tackle with tails or hooks or c)one of harry bryan's smallish lobster style boats
  11. sakkonett 23 for me
  12. they may have, they got around. Manitoba has a large population whose ethnic origin is Icelandic (centred in Gimli) but they were settlers. I think Metis springs specifically from the mixing of indigenous and European populations stemming from the fur trade.
  13. hah! must have missed the Norwegian royalty thing. Metis of, course, refers to mixed heritage with metis implying indigenous and french but you can be Metis with indigenous and scots/english. but to be Metis you absolutely need to trace your heritage back to the red river in what is now manitoba and the days of the fur trade and i'm pretty sure that precludes norwegian royalty! having one parent first nation and the other european does NOT make you metis. don't get me wrong, Brent is a tool...a "tremendous" tool...perhaps tool No. 1 but he still is entitled to OAS! ;>)
  14. ummm, that didn't stop Brittany and Christina
  15. are you kidding me? The corporate and personal tax regimes in this country rank mid pack in developed western countries, lower than those in the states, the UK and australia. the benefits that flow back to citizens in the form of personal payments are hardly luxurious. The two pension programs are the Canada Pension Plan funded (and healthy, i might add) by employee/employer contributions and Old Age Security and its related Guaranteed Income Supplement. Both are completely transparent. The Maximum CPP benefit at age 65 is $1,114 a month IF you contribute over 36 years and by virtue of higher earnings contributed the maximum. The average payout for new retirees across the plan in 2017 is $685/month. As Brent has admitted to working intermittently for wages you can bet his CPP is less than average. the OAS for a single persons is $578/month. Every person aged 65 gets this amount unless their annual income is >$120,000. if your annual Income is between $0 and $18,000 you qualify for some measure of the Guaranteed Income supplement. Assuming Brent hasn't no other sources of investment income, reducing his other income to whatever CPP he gets, well let's assume he gets $200/a month CPP that puts his OAS/GIC at about $1,400, + $200 CPP for a monthly total pension of about $1,600 a month. As I have said earlier if you are prepared as Brent is to live in a boat and avoid rent/utilities etc this is actually a livable wage. As to Brent's claimed aboriginal heritage? give me a break. The amount of money that flows to Status people as income support is negligible. You see that flag Brent flies on his boat, the one with the infinity symbol on a blue field? That is the flag of the Metis nation. Metis people, road allowance people, are not Status people. There is no first nation, there is no band, there is no reserve, there is no nation to nation relationship with the crown. The Metis Nation is and always has been broke. You can bet that Brent gets exactly 0 income support by virtue of being Metis. As a tax paying citizen of this nation I have exactly 0 problem with Brent claiming his OAS/GIC...0. The way this thread veers into "Brent is a freeloader" pisses me off...Brent receiving OAS does not.
